Breaking News Involving Maddie Ziegler, Travis Wall and "Pretty Little Liars"

As if we needed another reason to get pumped for summer, Maddie Ziegler is going to be on an episode of ABC Family's "Pretty Liars." I repeat: MADDIE ZIEGLER IS GOING TO BE ON "PRETTY LITTLE LIARS"!!!!

Hmmm...wonder what pretty little lies Maddie's got hiding behind those beautiful blues. (Photo by Lucas Chilczuk for Dance Spirit)

The "Dance Moms" starlet/Sia muse/Dance Spirit cover girl/all around boss at life caught the acting bug on the set of her first music video with Sia, "Chandelier." Maddie's shown us time and time again she has what it takes to portray dark, dramatic (and some may say disturbed) characters—and it looks like her role on "Pretty Little Liars" will keep with the haunting theme.

On Monday, Maddie and "Pretty Little Liars" stars Troian Bellis and Ashley Benson Instagrammed some spoiler pics from the show's set, and let's just say, Maddie Z. is lookin' pretty spooky.

Here she is with Bellisario:

 

Not quite sure what's going on here, but Maddie's simultaneously cute and terrifying:

 

 

And here's Maddie showing off her zombie-chic costume with co-star Benson:

 

 

But the spoiler that really got us going nuts is a 'gram Maddie posted with THE TRAVIS WALL. Apparently, he choreographed a delightfully creepy routine for her to perform on the show. Maddie Z. + T. Wall? I think that deserves a #lifemade.

 

 

The episode, "She's No Angel," is set to air sometime in July. WE CANNOT WAIT. (But, alas, we must. #sigh)

Isabella Boylston in "The Bright Stream" (Rosalie O'Connor, courtesy American Ballet Theatre)

Beloved by ballet fans for her lucid technique and onstage effervescence, by her Instagram followers for the deftly curated photos and videos she shares of her glamorous life, and by fangirl Jennifer Garner for all of the above, American Ballet Theatre principal Isabella Boylston is one of the rare ballet stars who's achieved mainstream fame. A native of Sun Valley, ID, Boylston trained at the Academy of Colorado Ballet and the Harid Conservatory before joining the ABT Studio Company in 2005. She entered the main company as an apprentice in 2006, and attained principal status in 2014. In addition to her successes with ABT, where she dances nearly every major ballerina role, Boylston has served as artistic director of the annual Ballet Sun Valley Festival, which brings high-level performances and classes to her hometown. And speaking of famous Jennifers: Boylston recently appeared as Jennifer Lawrence's dance double in the film Red Sparrow. Catch her onstage with ABT as Manon, Odette/Odile, and Princess Aurora during the company's Metropolitan Opera House season this summer in NYC. —Margaret Fuhrer
